Focused Feedback: Battle Point Event - Heroes Unleashed

  • Enjoyed the event; however, I have reservations about making it permanent as I fear it would split the player base. I would play this more than regular GA but am totally okay with it being a temp event. Once a month would be great but every other month would be more realistic for the community as a whole.

    i just voted positively to keep this Event

    my thoughts here @ https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/121645/appreciation-for-heroes-unleashed-event

    As of now In order not to split the player base, i would prefer to have it to as a Special GA Event though. Making this available every two weeks frequency sounds just about right to keep everyone happy, prevent Players Fatigue and let it remain Special :) Also you will have more Data and Metrics to work on and analyse to see if it will be a viable permanent mode on its own in future.

    I liked this event a lot, I rarely get heroes in GA, so I play mostly HvV and Strike, now was a change to get hero easily and it was fun. Game was more chaotic heroes everywhere, don't know is it so good or bad, this was such short event anyway. I still prefer heroes should be earned and played by only good top players, because heroes are so tuned down in this game compared to troopers. This should be temporary event and hero cost must be higher like before, that encourages to play better and then when you are playing better. There was option in orginal SWBF2 2005 version to give heroes only to worse players, though that was rarely used in any game, this event was like that option. Perhaps trooper only event should be next, that is requested many times, I like to see how that changes GA mode.

  • I would like to see it one weekend a month. It was fun and changes it up and got me back playing for a weekend again but if it was permanent it would split the player base too much.

    I like that idea. Every two or three weeks would be awesome, keep it fresh but not so rare that it'd be upsetting to miss a round due to a busy weekend.
  • A Permanent mode, not replacing GA though. If you can’t make it another mode, then have it occur every once in a while. Please make more modes like this though.

    The event was too chaotic. Heroes felt expendable and too easy to get.


    The chaotic nature is what made it so enjoyable, for me. The “expendable” nature of the Heroes, IMHO, resulted in more people taking those risks, which was a good thing.

    It was still easy to spot the reclusive, timid players; afraid of ever dying; as, when they got a Hero, they still parked outside the danger zone.

    The only part that was mildly frustrating, for me, was seeing no one push into an area on my tail as I blazed a path.

    Charge in, knowing very well it was to be a short-lived, one-way trip; defeat six or seven Troopers/Heroes; have my “meat matched” (to quote the lovely detective Lenina Huxley); only to see my teammates still taking pot shots from a distance.

    Still, the sheer joy of playing Hero Roulette; churning and burning like a mad man, outweighed any negatives.

    This sums up what I felt playing it all weekend.
  • I didn't enjoyed but I get why people would like it. So keep it and we can try having other events like this but as long as we don't have the big mode coming it should be a second ga playlist to let people who don't like to play the mode play ga.

  • For me personally I wouldn't mind if they even make it permanent as long as it's made into a separate mode. But that would split the playerbase from GA and I don't think that's a good thing.
    The event itself was a good chance to test the heroes in GA that are about to receive a HoK card.
    Other than that the gameplay itself was chaotic and getting a hero had 0 meaning for you. It didn't feel competitive at all just a hero spam fest. And with the combined superior defensive capabilities of the LS heroes unless you were facing a bad team it was near impossible to win as attackers especially on Naboo and Kamino.
    Overall interesting event though it should stay as it is, an event.

  • Worst.Event.Ever.

    Why?

    1.) it was forced on those who like to play GA as it is - no choice either play it or don't
    2.) Officers battlepoint gain has still not been addressed
    3.) People sitting in the lobby to grab a hero and not actually playing
    4.) Most of the time heroes did not play objectives
    5.) Absolutely no balance
    6.) Heroes should be earned, not given away
  • I loved it. Makes me not want to play battlefront anymore without minimal 3 heros each phase. Was amazing being able to use heros quick in phase 1 as well.
  • I don't liked it because Galactic Assault is not studied to have so much heroes. It was too chaotic. Already 4 heroes are too many in Galactic Assault.
    Maybe it can be permanent in a focused and appropriate mode, but for the love of God not in the normal Galactic Assault where the number of heroes must be lowered and not increased.
  • I liked the chaos in Galactic Assault, you really felt that you were in the battle yourself but it should NOT be permanent , here is why:

    - Lots of players are waiting in the menu screen to select a hero -> less people on the battlefront
    - Bad players getting a hero


    Or make a separate gamemode for 8vs8
  • Please don't make this permanent, it's gonna be insane to be honest. Just bring this event to Battlefront 2 once in a while and last for 2 or 3 days only, then things will get better. For those who like this, they will look forward to it and when it's live, they will probably be excited about it. And for those who don't really like it, they don't have to wait for so long for the event to be over. Or at the very least, make this event into a separate large-scale mode as suggested above.
  • I really enjoyed it for the first few rounds, but the novelty wore off pretty fast. In my opinion the chaos became more annoying than fun after a while. Also, It exacerbated the steamrolling issue and made playing the objective on certain maps/stages (attacking the MTT/AT-AT, opening the doors on Naboo, etc...) nearly impossible. I was on both ends of the steamrolls several times over the weekend and while nobody likes getting trampled, I also find it boring when I'm on the team doing the trampling.

    Ditto...
  • You guys need to make multiple Star card loadouts happen asap.
  • Sounds good, doesn't work.

    All jokes aside, though...
    I feel that this event is not compatible with Galactic Assault. Allow me to expand.

    It completely disrupts the pacing of GA and while this is not necessarily a bad thing, I feel that it has more cons than pros.
    I am a fairly good player and I always do the objective thoroughly in every game mode (GA and HvV being my favorite ones). I played the event for two days and what I witnessed was this:

    I'll start with the cons:
    - people running frantically around, focusing on the heroes and not the objective and in the end GA felt like HvV from Battlefront 2015; I feel that GA should be first and foremost focused on the soldiers and objective play
    - we were almost equally skilled teams and we were always trading wins on defense; a few examples, Naboo is impossible to win as attackers with 8 heroes in the throne room defending it, it felt rather silly hero after hero entering the Cantina on Tatooine while our team as Empire were desperately trying to capture it on extra time without reinforcements
    - the timer for hero respawn was too long and it kept people (me included) waiting in the pre-battle screen for a hero to be available again; should this event return, the timer has to go
    - I was rather disappointed that we couldn't play 2-3 of the same hero (2 or more Vaders on the Battlefront would have been dope)

    Pros:
    - it gave casual players the greater chance to play as a hero/villain in GA (but they can already play instantly without interruptions heroes or villains in a dedicated mode; in case you didn't get the hint, I wasn't a big fan of Battlefront 2015 HvV mechanics, namely the part that heroes/villains could slice so easily normal troops)
    - it was a nice testing ground for future events

    How it can be improved:
    - what I would like to see (and I believe many other players want, too) is a mode like Mos Eisley Assault from Battlefront 2 2005 with 20 vs 20 heroes and villains. Now THAT would be epic.
    - 8 on 8 heroes will be more suited for a mode like Strike (where only Heroes/Villains and Special Units are present), not GA

    From a certain point of view, Heroes Unleashed is already permanent. It's called Officer.

    It should co-exist with normal GA unless either mode steals too many players from each other on PC. Ok, since these posts are being "heard", pls fix the sound bug.

    The only people who want to make it permanent are those who can't get heros in GA. If you can't get heros, there is a game mode called HVV.

    Leave GA untouched and focused on fixing bugs.

    Also adding it in as a new game mode will also be a terrible idea, it will divide the player base even further and we all know the player base isn't that high to begin with nowdays.

  • Should be seperate game mode, it was awesome!
  • Best thing to happen to GA. But it should be it's own mode.

    Agree, It should be in he HvV section maybe. The last game had 3 bigs including WA, Supremacy, and Turning Point. They could give us original GA, Heroes GA, and the upcoming conquest/Supremacy mode.

    This will popularize the game with a lot of people (who currently avoid GA at all costs) even further and we all know the player base isn't that high to begin with nowadays.....so that would be a great thing.

  • Please make this a permanent mode alongside the normal GA. Or maybe even have them rotate every weekend on a permanent basis that way there is more variety.

    That might be your opinion but the statements are not true. Plenty of people loved the event and get heroes regularly and place at the top of the leader boards.

    You should concentrate on things that you can prove instead of your misconceptions.


    Not to mention that it DID pull in the HvV crowd, who actually DO know how to play heroes, plus we've had plenty of time to master a wide range of them, so we are probably more well rounded (skill wise) than the GA guys who typically only ever play whoever they can stay alive the longest with.

    I was the only person I saw in there running around with their lightsaber turned off. On a night map.

    Maybe what GA needs is some experienced HvV players to show folks how it's done. ;)

    I always turn off my lightsaber in Galactic Assault. It's crazy not to.

    I agree with you completely.

    If HU version of GA becomes a new game mode, the original GA will become a ghost town. Just look at current poll results. All new players will gravitate to HU.

    I think that the players who usually play in clans had problems coordinating an attack with the chaos of HU. In my opinion (I always play with randoms), that is a big plus. This in consequence mitigated the clan impact in steamrolls.

    Agreed.
  • I voted for it to be in a temporary rotation, but i wouldn't mind if it becomes a permanent mode on its own.

    I honestly didn't expect to like it when i read about before it started, but actually playing it changed my mind.
    Like others already said, the matches were much closer and barely any slaughter for either side, no more Heros just hanging back and farming kills while the troopers who actually tried to push get slaughtered by the enemies heros, instead everyone played agressive and pushed the objectives.
    I don't think i have seen as many matches decided in overtime on any weekend before this.
    Another positive thing i noticed was people playing different classes more frequently, i guess many didn't feel like they need to choose Officer to get points as fast as possible.
  • Please make this a permanent mode alongside the normal GA. Or maybe even have them rotate every weekend on a permanent basis that way there is more variety.
    I tried to start a discussion about getting a monthly rotating event for heroes and troopers (I suggested a week each), but it got exactly one like and one comment. So I doubt there's much interest in it. :smile:
  • So DICE, what's it gonna be? What are you at least leaning towards?
